MICHAEL KORS+ more
The youngest ever winner of the Council of Fashion Designers of America's 2010 Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award, Michael Kors' rise to sartorial stardom has unfolded at a lightning pace. A six-year stint at French fashion house Céline affirmed Michael Kors' talents before he established his eponymous label in 1981. While collections channel a fresh aesthetic season upon season, this designer's signature luxurious, jet-set aesthetic has remained constant from his mainline ready-to-wear collections to accessories, fragrances and a sportswear line. - less
Spring 2013 is inspired by the effortless glamour of California in the ‘60s and ‘70s. Sharp tailoring and streamlined silhouettes pay tribute to the confident angles of the Modernist architecture of Richard Neutra and John Lautner. Think polished sweaters with graphic stripes teamed with zip-up pencil skirts, edgy leather dresses in navy instead of black, and bright monochromatic coats. Bold primary colours echo the shades of the blue sea and sky, endless green lawns and the mythic glow of the Southern California sun.
